With great though and respect
to the health of our guests, we have decided to cancel our Sunday at Summit Salon events
until further notice.
We will issue refunds for anyone who has
already purchased a ticket.
We share with you a beautifully written
perspective on dealing with these uncertain times.
What if you thought of it
as the Jews consider the Sabbath—
the most sacred of times?
Cease from travel.
Cease from buying and selling.
Give up, just for now,
on trying to make the world
different than it is.
Sing. Pray. Touch only those
to whom you commit your life.
And when your body has become still,
reach out with your heart.
Know that we are connected
in ways that are terrifying and beautiful.
(You could hardly deny it now.)
Know that our lives
are in one another’s hands.
(Surely, that has come clear.)
Do not reach out your hands.
Reach out your heart.
Reach out your words.
Reach out all the tendrils
of compassion that move, invisibly,
where we cannot touch.
Promise this world your love--
for better or for worse,
in sickness and in health,
so long as we all shall live.
Stay safe. Be well.
Invented in 16th century Italy, the salon provided a gathering place for the exchange of ideas, culture, art, literature, sciences and philosophy. Throughout the 17th-19th centuries, salons flourished across Europe, Russia, Latin America and the United States. In the US, the salon experience was introduced by Martha Washington and remained poplular through the 1920's. However, by the 1930's (perhaps because of the Great Depression), they all but disappeared.
In the first quarter of this 21st Century, we are witness to a Realist Art Movement that is gaining traction. As an Imaginative Realist, I am excited to reintroduce The Salon Experience in my professional art studio beginning next month. I will offer two versions of The Salon Experience: one private and one group. The private version is for any person interested in viewing and purchasing my artwork. For a Private Salon Experience, please contact Joy Wolfe of Fine Art Advocates to schedule your Private Salon Experience.
The Group Salon Experience will occur once a month and will be available by invitation only. In addition to a stimulating environment in which to view and discuss my latest artwork in the third floor studio of the Griggs Mansion, we will enjoy food and beverages centered around a topic or theme for discussion. Sometimes this discussion will be lead by a scholar, poet, author, artist, musician, scientist or philosopher. These Group Salon Experiences will be limited to 25 people. If you are interested in participating, please contact Joy Wolfe of Fine Art Advocates
